The ancient 'greasy' lettuce of Constantinople. Ancient variety that has been grown by urban farmers near modern day Istanbul, Turkey, for the past 1,500 years. This variety has been cultivated for centuries in Istanbul’s famous urban gardens, called Bostanlar. These ancient gardens are now threatened by urban sprawl, thankfully there has be a resurgence of attention from local seed savers to keep this variety from going extinct. This variety has been recognized by the Ark of Taste as a beloved culinary symbol of these historic gardens. A romaine type with long leaves, a crisp center and white seeds. Locals report that the incredible flavor and tender leaves are so juicy and high in natural oils that there is no need for dressing. We are delighted to offer this culturally important and highly gourmet variety.

Review:

President of our garden club shared some of her 2014 seeds with me. Love this Lettuce - it has an upright growth pattern and allows closer spacing. You can prolong the harvest by cutting the outer leaves and allowing the centers to grow. This one tolerates cooler temps than some of the other Lettuce varieties. Started indoors in mid Feb. Hardened off and transplanted into the garden in mid March. It is now 6/11/2019. Temps are in the 80's. The first few plants are showing signs of starting to bolt. Harvested a lot of lettuce over the past 2-1/2 months!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This lettuce is a gorgeous lime green, and so delicious simply dressed with olive oil, a little salt, and some balsamic. It has required no special care, produces well, was the first to produce, It is showing no signs of bolting in the latter half of May in North Texas. I have some in full sun, and some in a bit of shade. For now the sunny plants are doing better (both are good...) but I expect that when the heat really sets in, the shade will help it keep going a bit longer. This definitely will have a place in my garden in the future.

Review:

Best tasting lettuce I have ever eaten!! I like the the growth pattern as it does not have crevices for slugs and bugs to hide. I have been using it as a cut and come again lettuce, picking only the outer leaves. So far so good. Flavor is incredible.

What are the pros? Flavorful when young.

What are the cons? Becomes bitter when bolting.

Review:

Grew this variety in 2018. Nice texture in salads with a little stronger flavor than some of the "bland" stuff you get from the grocery store. This lettuce is versatile in that it can be cooked for use in soups and stews without turning to complete mush. Combine several leaves to use as a wrap. Be sure to harvest leaves while young and tender. As plants start approaching the time to bolt, the flavor changes and becomes quite bitter. The growth pattern on these plants is upright. I used a spacing of 8 inches between plants and 10 inches between rows. They were planted in a layer of compost.
